The 8th Grade Gold Fillys remain undefeated this season after facing Poteet on September 30th. The Fillys won 25-5 in the first set and Poteet battled back in the second but it was not enough to beat Devine. The Fillys won the second set 18-10. “These girls are such a joy to coach!” Coach Shana Beaty said. “I appreciate Poteet’s effort, but they were no match for my B-teamers. EVERYONE on the team made a positive contribution. Great job girls!”
Aces: Iris Stricker 5, Alissa Zamora 2. Hits: Zoe Ortiz 1, Savannah Pequeno 1, Reese Duncan 1. Offensive Serve Receives: Stricker 2, Brynlea Byrd 1, Duncan 1, Liah Romero 1, Alanna Monreal 1.
The Gold Fillys are now 5-0 for the season with Hondo up next on October 14th.
September 30, the 8th Grade Maroon Fillys added another district win to their season against Poteet. The first set was close at 25-20 but the second set was completely in the Fillys control at 25-11.
“Poteet A-team was a pretty strong team defensively!” Coach Shana Beaty said. “They held their own against us in the first game only losing by 5 points. Again, my girls need to focus on what they need to do on the court to win the rallies instead of playing at a lower level with the attitude that ‘we’re going to win anyway’…We did a much better job the second game. We played more seriously and definitely made fewer mistakes.”
Aces: Kaylee Romano 2, Lizbeth Delos Santos 2, Rylee Esquibel 1, Kate Featherly 1. Hits: Esquibel 6, Brooklyn Miller 6, Macky Schnautz 3, Makayla Rivera 2. Kills: Esquibel 2, Miller 1.

Now 5-0 for the season, the Fillys will face Hondo Monday October 14th in Hondo and then at home October 21st against Pearsall.
